The course runs on a weekly schedule from Thursday to Thursday, with a new topic each week. This runs slightly ahead of the university week numbering: so, for example, on Thursday of Week 3 the lecture introduces material from “DMP Week 4”, with homework and quizzes, that then runs through a Monday lecture, tutorials, coursework submission, and then on to another Thursday lecture which presents the following topic.

In Week 6 of semester there is no new material but instead a class test covering the first half of the course.
